House Passes 20-Week Abortion Ban on Near-Perfect Party-Line Vote

President Donald Trump walks from Marine One across the South Lawn of the White House in Washington Wednesday Sept. 27 2017 as he returns from Indianapolis

Exceptions would be made in cases of rape, incest or where the life of the mother is at risk. Trump issued support for the bill even before he won the election. "Science leaves us no room to justify their slaughter, and our founding fathers leave us no path to disregard their right to life", said Collins.

The House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act late in the afternoon of October 3 by a vote of 237 to 189, largely along party lines.

Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life, said she remains optimistic about the bill's chances.

The pro-life Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) group noted in its Tuesday press release that nationwide polling from companies such as Quinnipiac, the Huffington Post, NBC/Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post/ABC News, and others have found that "a plurality or majority" of Americans support limiting abortions to about the first 20 weeks. President Donald Trump has said previously that he would support the 20-week ban.

The bill, named the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act", was introduced by Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), and will be voted on by the House on October 3. The state's nine Republican representatives supported the bill, including three - U.S. Reps.

Rather than the 20-week ban, legislators could be voting to authorize funding to ensure 9 million children have health care access through the Children's Health Insurance Program, or lifting the Jones Act to ensure families of Puerto Rico have unfettered access to food and supplies, or expanding Medicaid, or enacting legislation to curb mass shootings and domestic terrorism that leave families mourning loved ones daily. It is now just one of six nations to permit elective late-term abortion without restriction-the other five are North Korea, China, Vietnam, Canada, and Singapore.

Color-changing Tattoo Ink Could Monitor Medical Conditions
The team is still working the concept and needs to stabilize the ink so designs don't fade or diffuse into surrounding tissues. The tattoos, made with the help of such inks, can be invisible and can only be readable under particular kinds of light.

Such claims rely on subjective interpretations of "late term" and "elective".

"Basic compassion for human life demands that this legislation be enacted all over the country", stated National Right to Life Director of State Legislation Mary Spaulding Balch, J.D., in 2016, when SC signed a similar bill into law.

The White House letter also cited "recent advancements" showing "the physical structures necessary to experience pain" are developed 20 weeks after fertilization.

As for the narrowly divided Senate, where passing abortion-related bills can be harder than in the House, the legislation may not get floor time anytime soon.

After they gave up on repealing Obamacare and revising the tax code to provide tax cuts for the rich, the House just passed a bill that restricts abortion after 20 weeks. The same is expected for this year's measure, too, as the bill needs 60 votes to pass in the Senate, of which there are 52 Republicans. Can average people continue to do nothing just because they feel it will never affect them? "The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a big step in the right direction toward respecting the dignity of all life, especially those babies who can not even defend themselves", Dr. Abraham said.

McCarthy said he was hopeful that the bill would pass the Senate, thanking his friend Sen. "I am a strong supporter of pro-life priorities and will always vote to protect the unborn". I prefer "later abortions" - "later" because the vast majority (92 percent) of abortions occur in the first trimester.
